GULFPORT, Miss.–It looks like the Hurricane Hunters may have less work to do this year than the feds previously thought. There are new predictions that mean Mississippi might not even see one storm this year. Here’s more news to get your weekend started:
HURRICANE SEASON QUIETER
Hurricanes, you might not even see one come to Mississippi this year. It’s a new prediction from the feds and it says conditions are right for there to be even less storms in the Atlantic than they originally predicted.
MAN HITS COPS, TAKES OFF
IF you’ve seen George Hosey, Jr., call the Laurel Police. They’re after him for hitting a cop with his car Wednesday when they were trying to arrest him for drugs. He took off and they chased him. Found he had hit a tree, but took off running. They are still looking.
ACC– USED MURDERER, NO BAIL
This is somebody you don’t have to be worried about being on the streets. It was a carjacking that ended up with the victim dead in his own truck. That was in Meridian June 2o and Jamarcus Reed is not getting out of jail. He’s charged with capital murder and went to the judge Thursday. No bail.
THE TRUCK THAT DUMPED ITS DIESEL
If you use Hwy. 61 in Vicksburg, it was smooth sailing again this morning. Yesterday, not so smooth when a diesel truck flipped onto its side and hurt the driver. It also dumped diesel and it took hours not only to clean it up, but to pump the rest of the diesel into another truck.
WRECK DUI CHARGE
The Wednesday wreck on the Natchez Trace in Prentiss County that killed Pauline Demers, 56, and Gerald Nault, 56, of Quebec, Canada, Donnie William Sartain, 49, charged with DUI manslaughter. He was driving a pickup that crossed the line. They were on a motorcycle.
